Try the Englishman's Pimms and the muffaletta...all you need is 1/4 sandwich because they are huge! We came here for lunch. and the next day for Pimms on our cocktail tour. Nice courtyard (although way too hot to sit outside and eat in the middle...More

Must have their signature drink, and it's an awesome building! The service was very good. We avoided the courtyard due to the heat, but could see they had fans with cool mist spraying.

My sister and I sat here and had a Spritz. The bartender was an artist of drinks. This bar is full of history and has a beautiful patio.

The muffaletta was made fresh, unlike some of the other places in town that already have them wrapped and ready to go. This sandwich was warm, and delicious. It's a cool place to visit and look around too, there are signatures all over the wall....More

Visited on Sunday night on recommendation of a friend. Tried the cocktails and sampling of the food. Nothing overly special, the house it is in has some small claim to fame. Very casual.

Highly recommend shrimp salad in the avocado for lunch! A quarter muffuletta with a side of red beans and rice is a perfect filling lunch combo. The restaurant has indoor, outdoor and bar seating w beautiful antiques around.

Well I'd heard of a muffuletta - spelling may be wrong - but never seen one.A whole one (feeds 2) is monumental. My husband ordered a half size. Totally delicious. The bread is very light so tho' it looks stodgy it's really not. Too much?...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
